Camiguin Water vows to improve and develop sustainable water supply for Camiguinons

Camiguin Water Company (CWC), a subsidiary of Mizu Resources, Inc. has partnered with Camiguin Integrated Water System Cooperative (CIWASCO) and several Barangay Waterworks to provide province-wide, forward looking, and sustainable water infrastructure solutions for Camiguin.

Danvir Mark Farnazo, General Manager of CWC, said, “A total of P600 million during a 30-year contract will be invested for the development and expansion of water services and sanitation management in the province.”

“In our first 10 years of operation, P275 million is set for water source development, asset and non-revenue water management programs and service coverage expansion. We are close to completing Tupsan Pequeno Water System, this will provide water to more than 800 households (4,000 residents) in barangays Tupsan Pequeno, Catohugan, and Hubangon in Mahinog as well as Tupsan Grande in Mambajao”, Farnazo added.

CWCs service level commitments include reliable, 24/7 access to water, improved water pressure to at least 8 psi, and distribution of safe and potable water supply compliant to the Philippine National Standards for Drinking Water (PNSDW) to the consumers. CWC also commits to implement non- revenue water (NRW) reduction program ensuring sustainable water supply for the Camiguinons.

Farnazo stated, “Without water infrastructure developments, we have projected a supply gap of XX million liters per day by 2031 due to system losses and unmaintained pipelines. We will be investing 16 million to reduce current NRW of 47% to 20% in 10 years (?) which translates to improved water pressure and expansion of service coverage benefiting more than 8,000 households in Camiguin.”

CWC has also allotted 173 million for rehabilitation and modernizing CIWASCO and barangay waterworks’ facilities such as water sources, reservoirs, transmission and distribution pipelines as well as provision of chlorinators to ensure water potability, water production meters, and replacement of customer meters.

“Our objective is to turnover a modern and well-maintained water infrastructure to the Camiguinons after our 30-year project”, said Mr. Farnazo.
